6 Months Down & Only 2 To Go

I can honestly say that I am glad my Accutane journey is almost over. I have been on the medication for 6 months. Technically I could have been finished by now but my dermatologist suggested staying on it for a couple more months. So here I am, with clear skin for the first time in 15 years. I have zero active blemishes on my face.

While that may be true I am still suffering from a number of side effects cause by the medication. Currently I am dealing with chapped skin all around my mouth. Not to mention that the winter weather isn't helping.


I've been applying Honest Company Healing Balm religiously with no relief. I feel like I am on top of taking care of my skin. I make sure that I am always moisturizing so that my skin is never dry. Thankfully a full face of makeup distracts from he patches of dry skin.



Besides my skin being very dry I have also been dealing with dry hair. I've been using a number of differently leave in products that I am very happy with. However I thought that it might be best to my hair care routine.


Have you ever used a fragrance free shampoo or conditioner? I tend to be sensitive to scents so I find that this product doesn't aggravate me. I've used this a few times since receiving it and quite like the way it leaves my hair feeling. If you are interested in purchasing it from the website I went to: https://allurials.com/product/allurials-fragrance-free-conditioner-hair-types-men-women/


Are there any hair products that you would recommend for dry hair that is prone to breakage?

  2. My favorite thing for my own dry hair is to double-condition, and never wash the ends. I get in the shower, wet my hair, and apply conditioner to my ends right away. Then shampoo my head and scalp, ignoring the ends until I'm totally finished working the lather into my scalp. Then I'll run my hands down my "ponytail" just to get the soap running down before I rinse. Afterward, I condition again, and this has made the biggest difference. Usually the next morning when I get up, I'll brush my hair, and then put just a little coconut oil in my palm to liquefy. Rub my hands together briskly, and then run that through the ends of my hair. No brushing again after that though, because I don't want to track that oil back up to my scalp. It takes about ten minutes or so to really soak into my hair (I just use very little), and then I'm good for that day.

  3. I use Vaseline on my face and body. It helps lock in the moisture. You have been on quite a journey. I can't wait to see the end result!

  18. I condition the ends of my hair first. Rinse. Then use shampoo on top. This helps with static for the winter months

  19. Congratulations. I never had acne so I can't relate, but I've seen all the commercials for acne treatments. And of course I have friends that are beautiful inside and are so self conscience about how they look on the outside, so you are brave sharing your journey.

  24. Glad your treatment is almost over. Your skin looks better. I deal with dry hair too, but it's because I color it too much. I usually just use conditioner after I shampoo. Dove has really awesome hair care products.
